Author, Patrick Mader, visited WRC and shared with us some really neat stories on Minnesota Athletes that have been in the Olympics.  The idea came to him while on a canoe trip through the Boundary Waters.  We was thinking about the canoeing athlete, Angus "Sandy" Morrison while on this trip and it made him wonder if there were any other Minnesota athletes that won Olympic medals.
Minnesota Gold features compelling stories told by fifty-seven Minnesota athletes participating in the Olympics, World Championships, and World Cups from 1948 – 2014. As they pursued their dreams and persevered to compete in the greatest international competitions, these diverse athletes represented their state with dignity and brought pride to sports fans in all regions of Minnesota. 

Author Patrick “Packy” Mader presented an engaging and unique program as he shared the memorable conversations he had with these remarkable men and women who honored their sport, their state, and their country on the world stage over the last seven decades.
